I found another Duelist who felt ready to get profiled. Meet René Pinkes from the beautiful region of Saxony, Germany.

[b]René, tell us a little about yourself, what do you do for a living?[/b]

[b]René:[/b] I’m 27 years old and a public official, working for the government.[/quote]

[b]Where are you from and what was your trip like?[/b]

[b]René:[/b] I’m from Dresden, Germany. I took the train to get here and used the time to work some more on my Deck. The trip didn’t feel long for that reason; time flew by! The ticket price was also quite affordable, especially considering that I only made the call to come here rather late; so overall, I’m very happy on that end.[/quote]

[b]What Deck are you playing this weekend and how is it going?[/b]

[b]René:[/b] I’m playing Constellars, but unfortunately, I lost the first round. It was a very close game, but I’m not feeling too bad about it. I also started with 0 – 2 at the German National Championship and ended up on a 6 – 2 record that day. So I’m confident I can still turn it around.[/quote]

[b]What’s your opinion of the archetype in general?[/b]

[b]René:[/b]
I think the Deck has some consistency issues, but it has a reasonable chance against the Dragon Rulers as well as the Evilswarm Deck. I have huge troubles against Spellbooks, but that’s what my Side Deck is for.[/quote]

[b]What do you think about the recent expansions, anything that caught your interest?[/b]

[b]René:[/b] One of my favorite products is the Battle Pack 2 thanks to all the great reprints. I’m not quite sold on the Sealed Format yet, so I guess I’ll have to give it a few more tries. If only to open some of the God Cards as I like them a lot![/quote]
[nbsp]
[b]Alright, so what’s your goal for the weekend?[/b]
[quote]
[b]René:[/b] My goal is still to advance to day 2 and I remain hopeful that I can reach it.[/quote]
[nbsp]
Quite interesting to hear that someone’s not excited about the Sealed Format, but he still likes the Battle Pack. It seems like this product is scoring on a lot of different levels. Do you agree with René’s assessment or are you a big fan of the Sealed Format?
